Cabin Boy (1994)

4/9/2024
Once upon a time, there was a movie about an unlikeable fancy lad joining the unlikeable crew of a ship called The Filthy Whore after David Letterman tried to sell him a monkey, but at least it had Tim Burton as the director. Until it didn't. This week, Shat The Movies brings you "Cabin Boy," the 1994 box-office bomb that nearly sank Chris Elliott's career and left the Shat Crew scratching their heads. On one hand, this movie is terrifically quotable, wonderfully quirky and loaded with comedic talent. On the other hand, viewers might find themselves asking where the budget went, what year it's supposed to be set in and why a flying cupcake is spitting tobacco. Was "Cabin Boy" horribly marketed? Did the writers run out of material? What would happen if a Viking had sex with a shark? We dive into these questions and more in this week's episode.

Hardbodies (1984)

4/4/2024
Shat The Movies was made for movies like "Hardbodies," a motion picture originally planned for the Playboy Channel but released in theaters because America needed boobs. This 1985 skin flick has all the tropes you'd expect: women in bikinis, beach parties, waterbeds and cheesy lines. But "Hardbodies" surprised us with a few unexpected moments: a no-means-no stance on sexual harassment, a heartwarming makeover scene, an exploration of aging and a woman banged so hard she bursts through the roof of a limousine. In this episode, the Shat Crew explores the charm of bad writing, what qualifies as transactional sex and how marketing ruins everything. Gene marvels at the many kinds of breasts he didn't know existed, and Dick debates with Ash on whether America has gotten fatter or cinema has become more inclusive.

Let It Ride (1989)

3/29/2024
"Let It Ride" is a 1989 comedy starring Richard Dreyfuss as Jay Trotter, a perpetually unlucky gambler who, after overhearing a tip about a longshot horse, decides to bet all his savings on it. As Jay's luck suddenly turns around, he finds himself on an exhilarating winning streak at the racetrack, encountering various eccentric characters along the way. Despite facing doubts and temptations, Jay chooses to let his winnings ride, leading to a thrilling climax where his faith in luck and optimism are put to the test. The film is a comedic and heartwarming exploration of gambling, optimism, and the thrill of taking risks.

Do The Right Thing (1989)

3/20/2024
Discussing race in America is never easy, and it was even harder in 1989 when Spike Lee released "Do The Right Thing," a film filled with ambiguity, tension and Rosie Perez dancing. This supersized episode, commissioned by listener Grant Leisure, compelled the Shat Crew to take a hard look at police brutality, gentrification, reverse racism and freedom of expression. But, being Shat, your hosts also took the time to debate proper thermostat settings, what's wrong with Ash's computer and whether Gene Lyons is white.

Matilda (1996)

3/13/2024
Before "Matilda the Musical," "Madeline" and "Coraline," there was Danny DeVito's 1996 adaptation of Roald Dahl's "Matilda," a film the entire Shat Crew enjoyed — for very different reasons. Ash was the most familiar with "Matilda," having seen it in theaters. Gene had read other Dahl books and knew what to expect. Dick, once again, confused it with another movie. And that devolved into the tangential conversations you'd expect from the Shat Crew: What constitutes child abuse? Did J. K. Rowling rip off Roald Dahl? Which kid in the movie is cutest? Was Bruce Bogtrotter a hero because was fat? Or was he a hero who happened to be fat? Was Trunchbull "Eastern Bloc?" Was Matilda a bully? Did Miss Honey's secret really qualify as "dark?" It was all up to debate. As was the question of whether DeVito's choices worked. One thing's for sure, his casting was spot-on, wrangling comedic talent like Paul Reubens, Jon Lovitz and Rhea Perlman to score this movie some serious Weird Points.

Perfect (1985)

3/8/2024
We've all seen that scene from "Perfect" where John Travolta is humping his way through a Jamie Lee Curtis aerobics class, but there's another two hours to this 1985 box-office bomb. And we had to watch all of it. Longtime Shat The Movies beer buddy Scott in Friendswood, Texas, was kind enough to commission a film about Gene Lyons' three favorite topics: journalism, fitness and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Not to be left out, Dick Ebert had lots to say about sex with elite athletes. And Ash got into a car accident. What genre is "Perfect?" Do newsrooms run on self-loathing? How is 2024 gym etiquette different from 40 years earlier, and did we need so much footage of Jamie Lee Curtis driving? Find out for yourself in this week's episode of Shat The Movies.

The Legend of Billie Jean (1985)

2/29/2024
"The Legend of Billie Jean" had a little something for each Shat The Movies host. Gene got his Honda Elite scooter. Ash got her Christian Slater. And Big D got Helen Slater with no bra. But that's not why listener BreAnn M. commissioned this 1985 coming-of-age film. For her, "The Legend of Billie Jean" was an inspiration, a gateway to feminism and a radical view of what kids could do. In this episode, the Shat Crew debates whether all Gulf Coast states are the same, whether men are as bad as the movie makes them out to be and whether teens are a powerful force or apathetic losers. Gene offers some tips on how to make a powerful video for the media. Ash rails against the "these darn kids" messaging of '80s films. And Big D describes what would really happen to Billie Jean and her gang in the real world. Other topics range from the accuracy of police snipers to the plausibility of life in Vermont. And, of course, everyone loves Pat Benatar.

Gattaca (1997)

2/21/2024
When listener Rob F. commissioned "Gattaca" in honor of his father, we all remembered it as beautiful, futuristic and distinct. Oddly enough, we couldn't remember much else. We remembered Ethan Hawke but not his lengthy voiceovers. We remembered Jude Law but not the incinerator scene. We remembered Uma Thurman but not her character's heart condition. This 1997 sci-fi debut for director Andrew Niccol made some interesting choices, like casting loads of TV talent and pretending Jude Law and Ethan Hawke look anything alike. And it also had some swagger, like pinstripe spacesuits and film-noir vibes. The Shat Crew was left to debate: Is "Gattaca" a case of style over substance, or is it a visionary film that went underappreciated for years?

Pump Up The Volume (1990)

2/15/2024
Shat The Movies didn't invent sexual perversion, edgy attitudes and impeccable taste in music, we just perfected it. More than 25 years earlier, Christian Slater inspired teens to "talk hard" in the 1990 box office bomb "Pump Up The Volume." Ash was delighted when listener Eric commissioned this coming-of-age movie to highlight his belief in the power of listening. Dick Ebert viewed it from a parent's perspective, and Gene was aghast at Happy Harry Hard-on's terrible microphone discipline. As the Shat Crew debate whether a teen can suffer in the affluent suburbs, they touch on the King of Teen Angst, rites of passage, how to unmask a pirate-radio host, microwave explosions and whether "Pump Up The Volume" is just "Footloose" minus the dancing.

Short Circuit (1986)

2/6/2024
We noticed all the biggest podcasts seem to have celebrity hosts, murder or hot takes. Shat The Movies lacks star power. And it doesn't have thrilling true-crime tales. So this week we're banking on misguided opinions as we plug into "Short Circuit." Big D doesn't think Johnny 5 is really alive. Ash believes this is Ally Sheedy's worst performance. And Gene is convinced Ben Jabituya isn't Indian. Two of them are wrong, and Gene wrote this episode description. Despite their divergent opinions, the Shat Crew agreed on a lot of things about this 1986 Steve Guttenberg comedy: The robot design is classic. The film is oddly paced. And NOVA's security force is a bunch of dicks.

Fire in the Sky (1993)

1/30/2024
Before Arizona was the playground of retired athletes and conservative Californians, it was a quiet, spooky place full of Old West ghosts, dusty roads and alien abductions. We're taking you back to the Travis Walton story with "Fire in the Sky." Released in the same year "The X Files" debuted, "Fire in the Sky" terrified a young Gene Lyons, who went day camping in the same woods where aliens scooped up a logger in 1975, slapped jelly in his mouth and stuck a needle in his eye. In this episode commissioned by letter carriers Carlos and Natasha, the Shat Crew debates which podcast host is the bravest, when it's OK to leave a friend for dead and why it's so hard to believe aliens exist. Grown-up Gene and Big D see the film's rebel through new eyes. Ash gushes over David Duchovny (who isn't even in this movie), and everyone agrees Travis' friends and family are idiots. Come to think of it, so is Travis.

Legend (1985)

1/23/2024
Shat The Movies power couple Carlos and Natasha were kind enough to gift the Shat Crew three film commissions of our choice. So we used the first to fill a glaring omission in the Pantheon of Shat: "Legend." Nursing a "Hawk The Slayer" hangover, Ash was a bit worried venturing back into her beloved fantasy genre, but she quickly discovered Legend's production value was top-notch. Gene was impressed with dwarven heroics, and Big D felt like he was having a bad acid trip. But all three Shat hosts agreed on three things: Tom Cruise looked ridiculous, Ridley Scott builds incredible worlds, and Tim Curry is a god. In this episode, your hosts discuss the difference between alicorn, unicorn and Pegasus while plunging into less critical questions, including: Why does Jack abandon his loot? Was the enchanted dress all that enchanting? How long is too long to play Frisbee with metal platters? Are goth girls dirty, sexy or both? Did Darkness deserve banishment? And which version of "Legend" is the right one to watch?

Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)

1/15/2024
Shat The Movies takes its anglophilia to a new level with an English commissioner, an English guest host and a movie that epitomizes the English film renaissance: "Four Weddings and a Funeral." Rob Will Taylor joins Ash and Gene to discuss the reality of British weddings, why they start so early and why they suck for guests. The Shat Crew also explores the tragic tale of Charlotte Coleman, the charm of Hugh Grant and Ash's favorite sex scene ever. In this episode, Gene assumes Dick Ebert's mantle of Curious Average American Guy, asking about British phone habits, whether viewers are supposed to hate Andie MacDowell and how sleeping at pubs works. Ash applauds a powerful scene that still packs a punch. And Rob rails against That Fucking Song.

When listener Joe asked to commission a pair of films for his grandmother's 100th birthday, the Shat Crew never suspected his first choice would be "Hawk The Slayer." And the surprises didn't end there. This low-budget 1980 sword-and-sorcery fantasy treated us to machine-gun crossbows, a magical fisting sword and Jack Palance in a cape. We also got a Lord Rockingham soundtrack, serious Medieval Times vibes, a draggy dark wizard and a possible cinematic record for Most Improvised Grills In A LARPing Motion Picture.

If you had to assemble a film canon, a collection of movies you'll never outgrow, what would be in it? For listener Shawn, the answer is simple: "Death Becomes Her." We're kicking off 2024 with cutting-edge computer-generated effects (for 1992), life lessons about immortality and Goldie Hawn in a fat suit. As Big D explores the appeal of "Death Becomes Her" to the gay community, Ash dives into her skin-care routine, and Gene drools over Isabella Rossellini's ... umm ... mansion.

Philadelphia Experiment 2 (1993)

12/29/2023
Proving that we always save the Shat for last, Shat The Movies humbly presents its final film review for 2023: "Philadelphia Experiment 2." It's a movie full of time travel, family drama and big people giving small performances. Closing out the Month of Mark from Minneapolis, this 1993 sci-fi sleeper has all the feels of a prescription-drug ad mixed with military mistakes, questionable casting and wacky cinematography. In this episode, Dick argues that "Philadelphia Experiment 2" could have presented a more fun view of a dystopian 1993 ruled by Nazis (Ash thought it was plenty fun), and Gene helps him through a "Roger moment" while earning the Nobel Prize for Explaining B Movies.

Elf (2003)

What more do you want from Christmas than some warm fuzzies, friends returning from afar and the miracle of Shat The Movies covering another film from the new millennium? Maybe some Will Farrell. "Elf" is the rare movie that old people like Dick Ebert and young people like Ash's kids can equally enjoy. It's timeless, hilarious, a bit optimistic and a clever nod to the Christmas classics that came before. In this episode, the Shat Crew discusses Zooey Deschanel's singing, the perils of an all-sugar diet, New York City peaking in 2005, what makes a good Christmas movie, whether we're losing our holiday spirit, the "Elf" test ending that bombed, Central Park Rangers and the national treasures that are Bob Newhart and the late James Caan.

Go (1999)

12/20/2023
The Month of Mark from Minneapolis enters its Christmas phase with the 1999 crime comedy "Go." Or, as we like to call it, "MTV Magnolia." While Gene praises the film's optimistic attitude toward drug use, he struggles with painful memories of how trivia failed to make him popular. Ash compares director Doug Liman to Quentin Tarantino, and Dick tries to convince his co-hosts that being middle-aged is cooler than being young and dumb. "Go" provided the Shat Crew with plenty to discuss, including Timothy Olyphant as a sexy drug dealer, unexpected vehicular violence, strip clubs after threesomes, '90s soundtracks, hiding bodies and where to shoot an Englishman.

Ash is back! Shat The Movies' "female expert" rejoins the team and breaks the millennial wall to cover her favorite movie: "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." Topics in this episode run the gamut from manic pixie dream girls to breakups to losing pets. Gene airs some personal grievances about ex-girlfriends who needed to talk "right now;" Dick questions why people are allowed to relabel their character flaws as strengths; and Ash asks if "Eternal Sunshine" is the most honest love story ever made. Does Clementine suck, or does Joel just remember her that way? How close is memory-eraser technology to becoming reality? Does Big D need to do more hallucinogens to work through childhood trauma?

The Quick and the Dead (1995)

What do "The Quick and the Dead" and NBA Jam have in common? Is loose clothing appropriate for quick-draw competitions? How many flashbacks is too many? Commissioner Edwin instructed the Shat Crew to drink a few beers and have fun with this episode, and we were happy to oblige. Technically, Big D drank decaf coffee, but Gene made up for it with a few Red Trolleys. Along the way, Dick Ebert offered explosives advice and narrated "The Quick and the Dead" camera movement. Gene noted moments where he could feel Joss Whedon's influence, and both hosts agreed its pretty cool to see a kid shoot her dad in the face. For those listeners deeply invested in our chronic discussion of Gene Hackman vs Kevin Spacey, this episode settles the matter once-and-for-all while tipping a hat to Sam Raimi's unmistakable style.
